Grant Margeman has had to pinch himself a few times in the past six months on a roller-coaster ride from the Ajax Cape Town youth system to being a star first team performer‚ and now the Fifa Under-20 World Cup.
They say you can choose your friends‚ but not your family‚ and the rivalry between Ajax Cape Town and Cape Town City goes well beyond bragging rights in the Mother City‚ or Premier Soccer League (PSL) points … it’s personal!
Coach Stanley Menzo has admitted that he does not have a place in his Ajax Cape Town side for former Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns winger Lebohang Mokoena‚ whose future with the team looks bleak.
For some time it appeared as if Mamelodi Sundowns were going to drop two crucial home points with a pedestrian display but they dug deep to eventually overpower and beat Ajax Cape Town 2-0 in Pretoria on Tuesday night.
Staying in the game for as long as possible will be the recipe for any potential upset success over Mamelodi Sundowns‚ says Ajax Cape Town coach Stanley Menzo ahead of their Premier Soccer League clash against the champions at Loftus Versfeld on Tuesday.
